As Easy As One, Two, Three
How to Order Prints
Step 1: Add Photos to Your Shopping Cart
You'll find a Buy or Add to Cart above each photo. To add one photo to your cart at a time, click the Buy button and select This Photo from the menu.
Select the type of product you want for your photo: Wall Art: Includes vendor-specific specialties such as Traditional Canvas, Stretched Canvas, and Flat Mounted Canvas. Paper Prints: Get just the print without the fixin’s. Perfect for photo albums, scrapbooks, wallets, and more. Keepsakes: Includes mugs, buttons, and more. Digital Downloads: Save a digital copy of the photo to your own hard drive for posterity or printing elsewhere.
Once you’ve chosen which type of print you want, you’ll be guided through your options for making your print perfect! Want to add several different photos at once? Click the Buy button and select Photos from this Gallery. You'll see a thumbnail of every photo in the gallery, allowing you to click on the images you want. Your selections will be outlined in white. Click Change Product if you want to select a different print type for your photos.
Once you’ve finished selecting your photos and product type, click the Add Photos to Cart button to add all the photos you've selected to your shopping cart.
Click Checkout if you're ready to finish your order, or click Back to Gallery to keep browsing and shopping. You can always go back and add any printable photos on SmugMug to your cart, including those in different galleries.
Step 2: Get a Perfect Order
I give you lots of options to choose from to ensure the print you order will be one you love!
Size: This is the trim size of your product, shown as width x height. Everything standard size is available here.
Crop: You can tell me what part of the photo to print, right there in the shopping cart, by adjusting the crop lines. For canvas and other products that wrap a part of your print around a wooden frame or foamboard, a blue overlay will appear inside the crop lines. The highlighted center area represents what will appear on your print. Anything covered in blue represents what will be wrapped around the edges.
Finishes: This option is only available for select products. Select the type of protective coating you want for your print. My most popular finish choice is lustre, which combines the color saturation of gloss with the fingerprint resistance of matte.
Quantity: Increase (+) or decrease (-) how many copies of your print you want to receive. Add to Cart: Once you’ve finished selecting all your options, click Add to Cart to add your perfect product to your shopping cart. Don’t forget to click this button, otherwise your print won’t appear in your cart when you’re ready to check out.
Click View Cart if you're ready to finish your order, or click Close to keep browsing and shopping. You can also use the breadcrumb navigation to jump back to the beginning of the Add-to-Cart flow. This allows you to quickly apply the same product options you just used to a different photo, add another product using the same photo, or start from scratch with a new photo and completely different product options.
Tip: Found your perfect mix for a product? You can apply them to another photo all at once! Once you select a new photo to add to your cart, look below the photo preview for “Previously Selected Product” and select “Apply to This Photo.” You’ll be taken straight to the “Add to Cart” screen, with every option already applied to the new photo.
Step 3: Check Out
Once you’ve selected everything you want, click View Cart to be taken to your cart. Here you’ll enter your shipping and billing information, as well as any coupons I have given you. You can also make changes to your order—like if you decide you want two of everything! Near the top of your cart, you'll find a Bulk Options button. Click it and you'll see this screen: Use this to change the quantity of everything in your cart at once!
How to Order Packages
Log-in to your password-protected gallery. Then click your gallery's Buy button. Package options will appear under your gallery's Buy button. Once you select the package from your list, you'll be taken to an area to select the photos. Completing the package is as simple as clicking and dragging. When each item in the package is matched to a photo, you can add the package to your shopping cart and check out. Easy pleasy!
How to Order Digital Downloads
If you want to buy Digital Downloads of photos and videos, checking out is even easier! Just click the "Downloads" tab in the cart and choose the size and type of license you want. Some photographers also offer Printmarked downloads, and gallery downloads (allowing you to download all the photos in a gallery at once). Once you've checked out, you'll see a button on the order confirmation page to retrieve your files. Don't see it? No problem—the same link will be available in your email receipt. Works on Mobile, Too! The checkout flow also works seamlessly on any screen size! Buy prints and gifts anywhere with just a few taps. Once you’ve found the photo you want, tap “Buy” and you’ll find the familiar flow shown above, perfectly formatted to fit your mobile screen.
